Aisha, the laptop
When I look at my to-do list and the timeline in which to accomplish it and fully realize the urgency of NOW, I panic. When I panic, my anxiety goes UP. When my anxiety goes UP, I freeze up like a malfunctioning laptop. When I freeze I'm unable to do all the reading, researching, drafting and such I require to accomplish all the things urgently in need of accomplishment. Instead, I find myself involuntarily frozen in place chanting ohmigod in a monosyllabic tone while more to-do items fill up resulting in more panic, more anxiety, more freezing. If you are walking to your office today and come across a random 5 foot 5 pile heap of papers, please poke it kindly. Urge it on its way. It might be me.
